Oh yes, I remember years gone by and feeling mad at the world after holidays. Life's too short to spend holidays with people who make you nervous or annoy you.

I did well also. I ate my meal and tried a few desserts but what stands out the most this year is that I didn't internalize any bad feelings regarding holiday conversations, relatives' personalities, etc. I think this is the first year that has ever happened. The great thing about that is that when company left, I had no urge to binge, because my feelings weren't all raw. I did have a terrible headache, but I am conveniently blaming it on the barometric pressure that day. (so it's possible that I did have a bodily reaction to the company, but it did not result in a binge, that's my point, lol).

Well it sounds as if you did just wonderfully! You enjoyed the holidays, indulged in some yummies a tiny bit, and your gain was so minimal that it made me laugh.
:-)
Good work !!!

I actually did pretty good over what was a 5-day weekend filled with family meals and frivolity. I gained two tenths of a pound because I just couldn't stay out of the cookies but since my food choices are slanted more toward veggies these days, I managed to avoid gaining five pounds and I have to crow about that :)
A friend shared a tofu turkey --which was out of this world, by the way -- and that was our Friday meal along with a little viener schnitzel for the meat eaters. I made the schnitzel but I only ate a little piece to make sure it was right. It definitely was.
Four of us made short work of a fresh apple and pear pie and half a cherry pie as well.
Our lunches and night snacks were comprised of various leftovers and the fridge is pretty well cleared out now.
Over all, I don't feel I have anything whatsoever to be ashamed of related to Thanksgiving and my eating habits. And THAT is definitely something else to be thankful for :)

Post here about your day. What feelings did it inspire? Did that affect your eating?
What have you learned about food and family today?
